Hate For Grammatical Laziness

Eric R. from Rice University

I fucking hate people who still do not know the difference between "your" and "you're." Now I can understand the occasional chance typo, but the people who continually refuse to expend the extra two keystrokes (or god help me, pen strokes - you really have no fucking excuse then) and instead wallow in the pools of idiocy frustrate me to no end. Is it really that hard to retain information you learned in third grade, in that very first lesson on how to use apostrophes? Or did you miss the next seven years of school, when they drilled it into your head so you wouldn't look like the lazy imbecile you became today? I know it's mighty confusing, since apostrophes can denote possession AND contractions, but you're just going to have to get those darned exceptions through your thick dumb head. How did you even get out of the grade school system? Did you just figure it was not information worth remembering, because really, how often does one use the second person? Well guess what asshole, you can't count on spellcheck forever, and when you get rejected for that job you really wanted, but you just confused those two little words on your cover letter, I'm going to be laughing. From my corner office. And don't even get me STARTED on those "where you at?" commericials. Boost Mobile, if you are really trying to increase your "street" image by continuing to abuse my ears with that god-awful phrase, I am going to personally cause you pain.

Mom?

Thank God I'm not alone in hating people who can't spell or use proper grammar.

I think that if something as insignificant as grammatical laziness is upsetting you this much, then you most likely will not live a very long life because your blood pressure is going to be crazy-high. And excuse me if 'crazy-high' is not grammatically correct.

As an English major and fellow member of the Grammar police, I also say AMEN!

Dare I point out that this diatribe against the grammatically incorrect has itself committed the horrid sin of a run-on sentence?

Those damned Boost Mobile slogans are pissing me off, too. Everyone puts "at" at the end of their sentences. Why? You morons purposely save key-strokes on things like "your," but you decided to actually put in more words by putting an unnecessary "at" at the end of sentences.

Where is it? > Where is it at?

FUCK YOU ASSHOLES

Here, here! But I think it's a two-edged sword. If someone chooses to advertise their ignorance, it's much easier to spot the morons. While you're at it, how about those jerks that like to spell it "morans"?

Wow, do I ever agree with you. Something else that drives me nuts is "should of." WHAT? You mean "should have" or, if you can handle typing it, "should've?" Hmmm, I think I need to start my own thread.
